LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Fraser and Jenkinson, Melbourne, 1914. Softcover, 7¼" x 5. Page edges show wear, covers have some spoiling. Book in GOOD condition. Stapled binding within covers, 10 sephia illustrations (photographs & drawings), 4 b&w proclamations, and appendices. This is an account of the circumstances leading to Eureka Stockade, 1854, on the Australian goldfields at Ballarat, the attacks on the Eureka Hotel and the Stockade, and the events which followed. Author Ross deems it 'the pioneer and supreme Australian event in the spectatular sense'. At its heart, the gold seekers rebelled against the autocratic manner in which the licensing system was administered, leading to a clash with police and militia and the deaths of at least 30 men. Pages each side of the sephia plates are now heavily browned, but still legible.
